    No rivets were used on german torpedoes after the initial versions of the G7a(TI) (ie mid/late 1920's), so definately not a german G7e variant. It's not a G7a(TI) as well (both G7a and G7e were made of steel).
    Most likely british, but I don't know much about them, so I can't give an id from this sparse info. Given that it's made of brass, it's certainly an older torpedo (WW1 or before), and german torpedoes of that era is of course also an option.

    Thats a cool part to have from any torpedo, its fuze/pistol. Cool seeing it stamped, "RNTF," Royal Navy Torpedo Factory.
